So, like I suggested yesterday, EB and EBSO and EBB and I went to the Topsfield Fair...

EBM and Mac, faithful canine, seeing us off.


It is getting to be foliage season. (Sigh, nature's beautiful coma.) I like the layer effect and motion in this photo.


One of the other rides they had there was the "Earthquake"... I loved the art on the side...


But you know, if you were really trying to survive during a major geological upheaval and resulting catastrophe, maybe it would be better NOT TO HAVE A LIT STICK OF DYNAMITE IN YOUR HAND. Just sayin'.


I guess a more recent variant on "Calvin peeing on a [Chevy|Ford] Symbol" is "Calvin kneeling at the Cross".


EBSO+EBB, nice mother/daughter photo.

So we saw us some agriculture and livestock... Topsfield is the oldest agricultural fair in the USA (since 1818!)

They had big pumpkins...


REALLY BIG pumpkins.


I tried to capture the stately dignity of a cow.

Of course one of the best parts of any fair are those giant turkey legs...


O jeez this is awkward.

TOMORROW: COMPARE AND CONTRAST WITH THE HARVARD SQUARE OCTOBERFEST AND "HONK" PARADE!


Not only working today but there's the regular all-division townhall meeting at 8:30... Nokia Finnish overlords know not from Columbus!
